Subject: same era but
I too grew up on the shows of the 80's my first actually 12/1/79 while in highschool but I think the boys had found some magic from Fall 89 thru Summer 90. I remember these shows I found out were announced half-way between Cali. & D.C. but got lucky gave a guy from Waterbury Ct. a ride for 2 tix after last night at Cap. I personally think these shows are better than average.I really don't try to steer anyone anywhere because different shows have different significances to people that may make them like em better. Anyhow this show is well worth the listen for sure liked the Iko and Dew the best.
Subject: Where are the jam's
I'm an early/mid-'80's Head. I still traveled a bit up through Fall '89. But I couldn't stand the shows after Jerry's coma, on far too many occasions. No improv, no chances, no jams. Some brilliant moments no doubt - but in the end shows left a lot to be desired. We didn't have that exhausted, spent, blown-away feeling like we got almost nightly in '83-'85. ESP '85. I mean look at this second set opening - are you kidding me? I would have walked out. I was at the 3 Cap Centre shows, again - some great moments, but average shows at best. This Shakedown pales in comparison to 8.3.82, 12.30.83, 12.31.84, 3.27.85, 4.7.85, 6.30.85, just to name a few I can think of without trying. We loved teh fact the boys staye don the road as long asd they did but let;s be honest and keep things in accurate perspective for new readers, we need to steer them to the good eras. This has great sound quality, us early/mid-'80's heads love CM's work.
